A few days ago I shared some Inchies that I had made which gave me an idea for a card using the silhouette jazz musicians and the Happy Celebrations stamps.
I started with stamping the colourful ‘splodges’ with bright colours of distress oxides (I love the intensity of the colour you get with them). Then I chose a musician for each colour and stamped him using Black Soot.
I then did the sentiment in Black soot too.
I decided the inside needed colour too…
I chose the long brush stroke stamp and stamped it three times in different colours and then overstamped using the Happy in Black soot and then added some little musical elements to keep with the theme on the front.
And finally… I used the same sets to ‘Jazz’ up the envelope too!
Really really happy with this … it looked like I wanted … in fact even better than I thought it would! I can see me using the Happy Celebrations set with other silhouette stamps to do this again!
And as for distress oxides… you all know how much I adore them… they really are the best ink I’ve ever used. Perfect stamping, beautiful blending and fun inky techniques. So yes another one for the Paperartsy challenge.
